Welcome. Chances are you read a review on this here blog, and are now wondering “Who the hell is this fella/gal, and what gives them the right to talk about beer?” The simple answer is that I am a guy. In more depth, I am no one, and I have no right to talk about beer. Sure, I had a brief stint working in the industry for the fine folks at Smuttynose Brewing Company, but that’s passed me now, and while I did take part in the brewery’s efforts to train their employees about off-flavors, tasting, etc… I don’t quite remember most of it. I remember Isoamyl acetate, though, so you may hear me spew that occasionally to try and sound smart… Really, I am just someone that likes drinking beer, and I like writing. My journey into craft beer practically began with this blog, and as such, most of my older reviews are rubbish and horseshit (not to mention most of my more recent ones, too). But they are a part of my journey, so I like them. This blog has evolved as I’ve furthered my journey, taking on place and event reviews, dabbling into cider and mead contemplation (which I have even less qualification for…) and housing my opinionated ruminations about this funky little world we call beer. If you enjoy it, leave me a message. I might reply and I might not… Honestly, it just depends. If you don’t like what I say, let me know. Arguments are always fun on the internet.
At some point soon I hope to expand here on just how I go about rating my beers, what I look for, and why I think it’s important, but for the time being, this is all I will give you. Enjoy it. Cheers and Beers.
